Professor David Key will present his lecture, “In Response to Industrialism,” in the Goins auditorium at 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 1.

The lecture will explore industrialism at the turn of the 20th century. Key said it will include discussing the importance of topics such as labor, gender, race and class during the time between 1865 and 1914.
